Moonbot Studios opens the book on film noir adventure

Wonderbook may not be everyone’s idea of a good time, but Moonbot Studios’ upcoming detective adventure Wonderbook: Diggs Nightcrawler sounds legitimately awesome. The title – which is due out on 29th May in Europe and later this year in North America – puts you in control of a detective bookworm who’s sent on a dark journey through the depths of literature. Along the way, you’ll encounter fictional characters such as Little Bo Beep, Itsy Bitsy Spider, and Humpty Dumpty.

Much like last year’s underrated Wonderbook: Book of Spells, the game uses a combination of augmented reality and the PlayStation Move motion controller to concoct an interactive story experience. “Being Wonderbook, this is no ordinary hardcover,” explained senior producer Nathan Baseley on the PlayStation Blog. “It is your controller, as you tilt, rotate, and turn the pages to help Diggs get the bottom of Humpty’s downfall.”

That video looked really good, I liked the entire concept.

Too bad the PS4 lacks BC b/c those games would probably be much better w/ the new HD Eye. Still, when it quickly drops to $9.99 in the US I may have to pick it up and teach my kids some film noir culture.

@rjejr Yeah, I'm worried that this is going to slip completely under the radar. The premise is, as you say, legitimately fascinating.

Move + Wonderbook + Book of spells costs 59 euros here. I may get it on a discount.

Will pick it up for my kids if not too expensive. the one I am really waiting for though is BBC Walking with Dinosaurs which is apparently coming. They loved Book of Spells.
